Sunday 11 March 2012
We always hear the mass at St Edmund's Catholic Church here in Southampton. Little Poj is so used to this Sunday routine that when we get up in the morning he knows exactly where we're going.
At the start of the mass the priest would ask all the kids to go with the lady church volunteers to one of the rooms where someone would read the gospel and explain it in a way that the kids would understand. When this is finished they would ask a few questions regarding what was read. Poj was so cute as he raised his hands to imitate the other kids who were keen to answer the questions. =)
They always have an activity for the kids at the end of the reading, before they ask everyone to join the mass in time for the offertory. This time they asked the kids to decorate a human cut-out and write what they would do for Jesus on the heart. Poj may be young but he already understood what to do. He asked me to go to one of the quiet tables and we did one each. He used the green and brown marker pens and asked me to draw the face for him. He was so proud of his work and was excited to go back to Papa E to show it to him. We are proud of him for interacting with the other kids and for participating in the activity even if he was one of the youngest in the room. Well done, Poj =)
